I love learning, teaching, and exploring!
This was an excellent introductory course on meditation. The lectures covered the basics, like principles of Buddhism and connecting to the breath during meditation. It also explained some more challenging topics such as compassionate meditation and meditation on grief and death. These lectures have taught me how to bring mindfulness into my day-to-day life. I'm looking forward to practicing the concepts further!
The professor was an excellent speaker. The pace was a little bit slow, but I think that is appropriate for this topic. The 30 minute lectures are the perfect length for listening without getting bored.
Yes, I listen to this often. I would reccomend this meditation to anyone with chronic pain due to arthritis, back injuries, surgeries or any pain issues. Why? Because it helps me.
Almost any other meditation or relaxation books are good. You may find them to be somewhat pricy for the length of the book but when you factor in the benefits they are very much worth the money. If this isn't in your budget there are plenty of free sources out there if you look but this is convenient.
There isn't really a scene with meditation but the meditation is very relaxing and does actually alleviate pain.
The insight that I appy to this book is that there are multiple relaxation methods out there and it allows me to focus on my pain so that I can take my focus off my pain. It is very interesting how this meditation works.
I wish that audible had an automatic repeat option button on the manager because I listen to this when I lay down at night and I sometimes wake up after the meditation and have to get up from a pain free relaxed position and replay or play another meditation or book. Also, it would be great if there were a longer book such as a compilation of meditations lasting overall around 6,7, or 8 hours. This would be more convenient and more affordable.
